1 Enakshi Ganguly = "The term Hindu astrology has been in use as the English equivalent of Jyotiṣa since the early 19th century, whereas Vedic astrology is a relatively recent term, entering common usage in the 1980s with self-help publications on Āyurveda or Yoga.Vedanga Jyotisha is one of the earliest texts about astronomy within the Vedas.[1][2][3] However, historical documentation shows that horoscopic astrology in the Indian subcontinent came from Hellenistic influences, post-dating the Vedic period.[4] Jyotisha has three branches, Siddhānta, Samhitā and Horā.Source:"
2 Enakshi Ganguly = "Vedic astrology reflects the understanding and experience of ancient spiritual teachers regarding the facts of life. Hindu philosophers, sages, went into great intricacies to explain God. They explain that world is evolving under the benevolent influence of a Divine Being. The Supreme Intelligence takes care of every individual and puts him under those circumstances which are best suited for his growth. This gives faith and confidence to the individual. Vedic astrology believes in the spiritual nature of man, and guides him in realizing his true self. It helps him realize that each soul is learning his lessons, which he can only learn under those circumstances. Thus, he comes to know that astrological prediction comes true because the soul is guided by Higher Beings, planets whose Judgment is never err.Source:"
3 Enakshi Ganguly = "Jyotisha is a powerful tool in illuminating what may previously have been an “unseen” chain of cause and effect and thus allows an individual to understand and ultimately find alignment with the trajectory of one's life path.  The ability to see the patterns of karma of an individual or a particular situation is likened to the ability to hold up a mirror and become aware of what really is the greater truth. "Karma" actually means action and "phala" means the result or outcome.The knowledge that this "mirror" can provide then becomes a starting point for constructive change and re-alignment of our challenging life dynamics or for maximizing our already promising outcomes. Like all classical Indian subjects, Jyotisha is truly a beautiful study that embraces many other disciplines and develops in its followers a unique blend of logic, intuition, pragmatism, analysis and synthesis.  Indeed, Jyotisha is a "sadhana", a spiritual path that can transform one’s life permanently.Source:"
